Cruis'n World - Nintendo 64 - Despite mixed reviews, I love this title.  Its a fun racer that doesn't take itself too seriously.  A nice selection of vehicles and colourful fun tracks, I'll give this the thumbs up. https://t.co/FoT2JsdBA0

Not retro gaming or strictly physics related but what the heck.  We had rough sea down at our harbour the other day...Living on the coast is great when the weather is good, not so much when its like this. https://t.co/VBM5KAwWsA

Just checked out @ConChaosBBS - its very good and a place I can see myself spending some more time.  It's very well presented too. https://t.co/Ykh2k3AFGO

BeebEm 4.15 - BBC B Micro Emulator - For me this was my first introduction to computing, many happy memories of gaming and coding on these machines.  Pick up the emulator at: https://t.co/8owh3gsF0r #retro #emulation https://t.co/FlisWiyD8H

I'm giving GNUBOY64 1.1 a run on the new N64 SD cart. I've tried running it first on Project 64 to test but with no joy. Anyone tried this before? Before I start removing SD cards and copying data over, is it worth doing?

"Educators may want to reconsider teaching Python to University students. There are plenty environmentally friendly alternatives." πŸ€” Python is the more CO2-intensive and less efficient of the languages in astronomy, argues https://t.co/KsXGEZGxSi https://t.co/lfiB60kgnr

Ok, that nails it -- I will code my next Bayesian model and CFA in assembly language. Was on the fence. https://t.co/iJU9G77wf9

I don’t know why David Icke supporters are so angry all the time. He once said it an inter-dimensional race of extraterrestrial beings were going to wipe out the world in 1997. I’d imagine having to wear a mask in Tesco would be relatively easy news to take after that.

Dragons Lair - I remember when this first appeared at the arcades and I was absolutely amazed, until that is you found out how it worked and what it was - a laser disk player mixed with a sort of "Simon Says" circuit, that allowed progression on correct key/joystick presses. https://t.co/5ks8pGhzkb

Say hello to the Motorola 68000.  Why is this processor so important? it's probably behind many of your most loved retro memories - The Amiga, Atari ST, Megadrive used it.  Operation Wolf, Streetfighter, Bionic Commando used it...to name a few.  #retrogaming #emulation https://t.co/JrKC2DYBHZ

And when I say "started" for clarity I'm talking about the Streetfighter series of games.

Streetfighter - Arcade - I love Streetfighter 2 and the many other similar titles.  Playing the original Streetfighter really highlights how far the genre has progressed.  This is not a title I really enjoyed replaying but it needs to be respected for what it started. #emulation https://t.co/UKeSVvqTdx

My first PC. an Amstrad 2286.  I loved this machine.  Many happy computing memories.  I saw this image of the machine on a Google search and it took me back all those years! https://t.co/RNpLPN2bcq

Space Hulk on 3DO, PS1 and Saturn. Way too early here in the UK to be listening to this game on headphones. 🀣🀣😱😱 https://t.co/K21NifMUpj

"For the Emperor!" - Wow, only ever saw Space Hulk on the Amiga and it didn't really impress at the time. https://t.co/62PBWmamue
